According to Variety, “Squid Game” is the most popular Netflix title of all time. The show received 1.65 billion streams in its first four weeks.
“Squid Game” is the first Netflix licensing deal in the casino and gambling industry. The game will feature iconic games from the show such as Red Light, Green Light, Tug of War and The Glass Tile.
The game will be on Light & Wonder’s new Horizon cabinet, according to a Light & Wonder news release. This unit features a 75-inch screen with 600,000 individual micro-LED pixels. This will make the display area an enormous 90-inches.
